Bio

I've been in practice for 29yrs. I have worked in general office pediatrics, for 23yrs of that. Now, I am a locum tenens. I travel all over the country, filling in when hospitals are short handed. I mostly work as a hospitalist, now, not out patient. I like to cook, read, garden and travel.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
